Please Touch Playhouse, Ground Floor

Sam is three and a half, and for some time now has had a bit of a problem. Every time he goes to sleep he has the sneaking suspicion there is something under his bed. It’s just the dust bunnies, his big people say. But Sam knows better. He hatches a clever plan to lure the “monster” out to finally rid himself of the terrible thing that won’t let him rest.
